A panel of experts gathered in New York to discuss the most pressing questions in modern agriculture. In part 3 we have brought together specialists in the fields of biotechnology and GMOs such as:

What impact do GMOs have on the environment and long-term health?
What more is needed to educate consumers about how their food is grown and raised?
What role does science play when addressing issues tied to food, including health concerns, drought and feeding a growing population?
